Buffalo Wing Burgers with Blue Cheese Slaw + GIVEAWAY
One thing I wanted to do this year, in regards to this little blog, is give away a bunch of cookbooks. (And also buy a lot of cookbooks for myself. But that’s beside the point.)
So every month I’m going to pick out a just released cookbook and buy a copy for me and one for a lucky reader. I won’t be accepting freebies for reviews so these will all be books that I’ve been anticipating and books that make me excited to cook.
I’m kicking it off with my all-time, all-time,Â all-time favorite Top Chef contestant’s books. Cooking with Love by Carla Hall! This one actually came out a few months ago but January was slim pickins so I cheated a little. I was super excited about this book and got even more excited when I opened to the table of contents and saw she has a gumbo recipe named after the Saints! The whole book is filled with good Southern comfort food.
This was the first recipe I made and it definitely got me pumped to make more. I’m not usually drawn to buffalo recipes (overdid it years ago – dip, lasagna, soup, pizza, name it and I made it) but I loved that these burgers included a blue cheese slaw.
They’re so delicious! The burgers themselves aren’t very buffalo-ish but you can either pile on the spicy mayo to get that flavor if you’re a huge fan or just do a light smear if you’re like me and feel kind of iffy on it. The slaw is supposed to be made solely of celery and blue cheese but celery is that one thing that I just can’t eat. So I used cole slaw mix instead and it was perfect!
I hope you guys are excited about all the upcoming giveaway! Enter below using Rafflecopter if you want to win Cooking with Love!
